Back in March I attended the Training Industry Inc, Future of the Workforce Conference, and had the pleasure of attending the session led by Sonia Malik @ IBM. Sonia presented on automation, the future of work, and building a skills revolution inside of IBM – her presentation was informative and very relevant for learning organizations today. If you are interested, you should check out the recording here. But I digress.
I was first introduced to the movie Monty Python and the Holy Grail in my senior year of high school. A teacher of mine thought me as way too serious of humans and suggested I need to learn to have a laugh. She gave me a copy as a gift (VHS not DVD thank you very much) and it became one of my favorite movies.
As a child of the 70/80’s I grew up believing that if you wanted to be great – all you had to do was eat your frosted flakes every day. I was totally that kid that Tony the Tiger was created for! As an adult, I realize that being great is a somewhat more complicated proposition – individually and for organizations.
